Even with me, that ranting reached its peak in the second two or three pages.A particularly gushing review on Amazon says " This nove is written at a level which kids in their lat eens could easily assimilate. " and goes on to say that this nove might be standard part of school curriculum across the globe.
I do expec that the topics in his nove hould be in standard school curricula across the globe, but otherwise his book 's presentation.Some specific items irritated me too.
They use the term " seething disequilibrium " to describe this balance of forces; to me, " seething equilibrium " would be more accurate -- but perhaps that 's not poetic enough? Another specific: The authors se the ord " creativity " in contexts ( stars, universe, evolution, etc.) where it just did n't seem appropriate.
Poetic, maybe, but to my mind meaningless.Towards the end of he novel, the authors essentially proselytize about how humans are destroying our own ecological system -- a view I share.
